Sennheiser is already well known in the audiophile community for its high quality, studio-ready headsets. Now, the company has updated their most heralded headphones, the HD800, with the HD800 S, taking the sound fidelity up a notch.

The new model uses an upgraded 56mm transducer system — the largest transducer found in headphones to date — that provides highly detailed sound with no distortion (or rather, less than 0.02 percent). The headset has a massive frequency response range from 4 to 51,000 Hz. Each set is crafted by hand using high-end materials like stainless steel gauze, layers of sound-attenuating plastic and stainless steel, as well as aviation-grade plastic in the earcups. The new version of the headset also adds a symmetrical XLR4 cable, enhancing the equipment level. Pricing information is currently unavailable, but the HD 800, its predecessor, currently has an MSRP of $1,899. [Purchase]
